**REPOST- Cleaned up some audio glitches and pops coming out of clip transitions that we apparently forgot to do in our editing process. Oops. Podcasting is busy. Kind of sounded like our earlier episodes. Anyways, it's better now. Keep on Doccin'** Wave that rainbow flag, Doccalo! Angela and Ginger team-up for week 3 of Pride-Month and Bob is still gone. He hasn’t left much notice of anything but strange ineligible voicemails. But it sucks because Bob took all the money. Also, who writes...

Wave that rainbow flag, Doccalo! Angela and Ginger team-up for week 3 of Pride-Month and Bob is still gone. He hasn’t left much notice of anything but strange ineligible voicemails. But it sucks because Bob took all the money. Also, who writes these show descriptions? If it’s not Bob, then who is it? Seriously, what the fuck is going on? Let’s move on to this doc where we get into some drag culture history. This documentary just might be the most influential and culturally relevant film...

Shorties 22: New Deep South: Kayla

6/13/2019

Whattaya know, Doccalo? Pride month trucks on with Angela holding down the main eps, but Bob and Akil stashed some Shorties for you to enjoy. Or hate? It’s up to you really. We continue our talk on Rosie Haber’s “New Deep South” series ( find it over at www.thefront.com ) with a documentary short that strikes to the core of that southern life as an LGBTQ person in Jackson, Mississippi. Austin is one of four “out” kids at his school, and he has a plan for his upcoming graduation to take his...

Hey ho, Doccalo! We welcome you to the Documenteers! Angela and Pride month roll on! Akil joins Angela to discuss a documentary about the gender fluid sub-culture within Puerto Rico, and within that sub-culture itself is a variety of personal stories, personalities, and opinions. Angela and Akil discuss Antonio Santini and Dan Sickle’s stylish transgender piece “Mala Mala” from 2014. ¡Más de la mitad de esta película está en español! No lo hablamos porque todos en este episodio tienen una...

Shorties 21: New Deep South: Instababy

Hello, Doccalo. Angela is the host of all the main episodes during Pride Month, but unfortunately Bob banked some Shorties with Akil before he flew off to California to pursue the “Podcast Illuminati”. Who knows where Bob is by the time you hear this, but that egomaniac had to make sure he hosted something this month. This “Shorties” episode is the first of three short documentaries in Rosie Haber’s “New Deep South” series that you can find over at www.thefront.com . “New Deep South” takes a...

Hello, Doccalos! Get your rainbow flags out because we’re celebrating Pride month all June-long! Angela has taken over all the main episodes and Bob has fucked off to California to sell out the show to a bunch of podcast elitists. We’re sure it will work out, Bob. (Makes hand job motion). Meanwhile Angela kicks off Pride month for a special episode with her brother, Bryan, and they’re gonna talk about some real serious shit. Shit so serious that maybe they should have dropped this episode...

Shorties 20: Me At The Zoo

5/30/2019
More
Hey there, Doccalo. Welcome to May’s last “Shorties” episode. Bob and Angela discuss a video that may not seem like much, but it’s a big deal in internet video history. “Me at the Zoo” by Jawed Karim is more than just a passively silly, seemingly pointless, YouTube video. It also happens to be the very first video ever loaded onto the YouTube website. Also, it’s really informative because Jawed takes the entire 19 seconds to explain everything he knows about the elephants that he’s standing...

Roll up a Hog’s Leg®, Doccalo. We’re about to get into the highest 30 for 30 yet! Ricky Williams might just be the most enigmatic NFL player ever. So enigmatic that the Heisman Trophy winner has no issues with walking away from millions of dollars to go sleep in a tent in Australia. Meanwhile, back in the United States, bitter schlubs who peaked in the 11th grade and loot their kid’s college funds to get good seats for an NFL game that they can’t really afford in a multi-billion dollar...

Hey Doccalo. It’s time again to go back into film history. Back to France. 1912. Paris. The Eiffel tower. This very short video is of a very brave inventor by the name of Franz Reichelt who demanded to test out his Missy Elliot Parachute Suit® all on his own with no dummy prop or anything. Why not also invite all your friends and all of your neighborhood to come watch you jump off the Eiffel tower? Then you can show all your haters that your Missy Elliot Parachute Suit® is awesome and works....

Welcome, desperate doccers! You’ve tripped over another episode of the Documenteers podcast. On this episode Eldridge and Bob went to the theater to watch Khalik Allah’s “Black Mother” and now we are all baptized. Come on down to Jamaica...mon. (groan) We be jammin’. (ugh) Let’s roll up a hog’s leg (YES) and go to that great island nation and feel the intense swirling of culture, religion, mothers, life, death, more mothers, Chinese wholesalers, genitalia, mothers, and babies.

Shorties 18: Juggalette Beauty Pageant

Woo Woo, Doccalo! Our shameless attempt to co-opt with the Juggalos continues and we head to the infamous “Gathering of the Juggalos” where a young woman called “Steak/Stake/Staik???” goes to see what the Juggalettes are up to and it turns out they’re changing the game of female representation within the Juggalo community. We finally get to a VICE documentary for this “Shorties” episode. (note the host named “Steak”sp?) Ginger and Bob discuss “Juggalette Beauty Pageant” which is also...

Hey there, Docubuddy! YOU READY FOR A DOC FIGHT!? Last time we did this, we threw both of the Fyre Festival documentaries against each other and declared a victor. The results stunned the world. We re-visit that theme because there happens to be two documentaries referencing the fandom and experience surrounding one of our most beloved comedic actors. In a NO HOLDS BARRED viewing experience, Akil and Bob sat down and watched “Bill Murray Stories: Life Lessons Learned from a Mythical Man” by...

Shorties 17: Björk Talks About Her TV

BEWARE OF POETS. We will tell you the moral off the top. Welcome to another “Shorties” episode, Doccalo. We’re excited to bring back a host we haven’t heard since last year. Ginger returns to the Documenters for her first trilogy of Shorties. We start off with a short video of a pop singer that we’re pretty sure is immortal. We check in on Björk who is checking in on her TV, and she wants to tell us how it works. Icelandic poets warn of the subliminal manipulations of television frames, but...

Strut that shit. Shake your tail. Don’t vomit hairballs on the judges. These are just some of many rules that should be exercised if you are a cat going for glory on the Canadian cat show circuit. Angela and Bob needed a decompressor from all the documentaries they’ve been seeing regarding child abduction, domestic abuse and other terrible things. The solution? “Catwalk: Tales from the Cat Show Circuit” by Aaron Hancox and Michael McNamara. You can watch it now on the juggernaut that is...

Hello Doccalos, welcome to the third and final installment in the "Celebrity Bands" series. Bob is obsessed with famous mediocrity, so this topic will return for sure. Angela and Bob close out this trilogy with what might just be the most frustrating celebrity band of all. "Celebrity" is a de-facto term here as the person was born into wealth and was pretty much handed the operations of Madison Square Garden on a silver platter. New York Knicks fans might have a panic attack because this...

Play ball! Pencil and paper ball, that is! Also known as Rotisserie. Later known as Fantasy Sports. Now it makes mad money. Drew and Bob point to the stands and knock out another 30 for 30 with Adam Kurland and Lucas Jansen’s “Silly Little Game” and it’s all about the origins of fantasy sports. Rotisserie baseball to be exact. This is about the publishing dorks that invented a game that is very boring to anyone that isn’t playing it. They break it all down in this flick alongside some even...

Hello Doccalos. Get Your Herzog flavored Faygos up in the air because Angela and Bob are ready to put the spotlight on another musical act that is propped up on celebrity money. This next band you think you may enjoy on paper, but seeing it happen is another result entirely. We don't even get to the music in this one, because Billy Bob Thornton and his Boxmasters have a bone to pick with the host of QTV. (Turns out the host is called Q. We think.) Actually, the Boxmasters seem pretty damn...

Hey-Oh, Doccalo! Hope you got your turtlenecks all cleaned up. Hell, keep em dirty for all we care! It’s time for another episode of the Documenteers and this episode gets pretty bloody! By popular demand, Bob and Stuart sat down to discuss an HBO original documentary, and our first foray into an Alex Gibney film! Elizabeth Holmes had a dream, and an uncle (once), and a deathly fear of having her blood drawn. So she had a vision to get full blood diagnostic from a mere pin-prick. Then you...

Hello fans of tiny documentaries that many don't consider documentaries, but actually they are as written and decreed in the Book of Herzog that has not yet been available to the public. Welcome to the Documenteers podcast. The SHORTIES edition! Angela joins Bob for a three-part Shorty series on celebrity fronted bands. This week we start us off with a doozy.

Hello, Doccalos. You ready to get your walk right? You ready to either burn or expand your collection of rock music? Jonni and Bob dive into the 3 hour expose on Satanic themes in popular (and sometimes very underground) music. We’re discussing the notorious christian film “Hell’s Bells: The Dangers of Rock ‘n’ Roll” by Eric Holmberg and Reel 2 Real ministries and our new favorite songs are now just pop songs played backwards. Also, a shocking amount of verses read from Anton LaVey’s Satanic...
